As discussed before, the customizable grid is the default option used by the applications menu to organize the apps. The customizable grid has much more option to customize the apps menu than another, such as rearrange the apps position, add or remove folder, create new page, access app info, etc. That's may be the possible reason why this view type is set as the default.

  9. Create new page:
    • Tap and hold the desired app you wish to move to the new page and then drag it to the Create page icon located at the top of the screen.
    • Release to create new page.
  10. Access app info:

  11. Uninstall downloaded app:
  12. This step can't be applied for the stock apps.
    • Tap and hold certain downloaded app and then drag it to the Uninstall icon located at the top of the screen.
    • Release to uninstall the app.
    • Tap OK button.
  13. Tap Save button to save the changes.

FYI, if you choose the alphabetical grid as the view type then the step #5(rearrange the app position) and #9(create new page) will not available. While, if you choose the alphabetical list then you'll not allowed to edit the apps in the apps menu. So, the conclusion is: if you want to edit the apps menu then you should choose the customizable grid or alphabetical grid as the view type. Well, hope this helps :)
